Lodro Rinzler – Patience From a Buddhist Perspective

Thought of the Day:

“Patience from a Buddhist perspective is not a 'wait and see' attitude, but rather one of 'just be there'... Patience can also be based on not expecting anything. Think of patience as an act of being open to whatever comes your way. When you begin to solidify expectations, you get frustrated because they are not met in the way you had hoped... With no set idea of how something is supposed to be, it is hard to get stuck on things not happening in the time frame you desired. Instead, you are just being there, open to the possibilities of your life.”
